Behind Closed Doors II: Settings of Anderson and Dickinson by Logan Skelton
Logan Skelton, composer and UM professor of piano, presents settings of American artists-poets working largely behind closed doors. In this second and final concert, Skelton presents his 2003 Anderson Songs, on the writings of American artist Walter Anderson, with projected images of his art. A noted eccentric and hermit, his writings speak of the artist communing with nature and of the relationship of the human condition to the natural world. Skelton also premieres a new collection of Emily Dickinson settings. Anderson and Dickinson, working "behind closed doors," were able to develop unimpeded along their own unique paths, pursuing a pure, all-consuming artistic vision. Skelton is joined again by longtime collaborators Jennifer Goltz, soprano and Professor Stephen Lusmann, baritone.
This program is copresented by the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the UM School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
